Today, police released additional details and report that they have spoken with a woman who claims to have been the driver involved in the accident.
According to police, the victim in the accident is Trey Moffett, 18, of the 200 block of East Seventh Street. He was walking north across East 12th Street when struck by an eastbound vehicle Monday night near 9 p.m. Police believe Mr. Moffet was then knocked into the westbound lanes where he may have been struck by another vehicle.
Mr. Moffet’s injuries, while severe, are not life threatening, according to police. Initial reports indicate that Mr. Moffet suffered a fractured leg and perhaps facial fractures although later reports have not been as specific.
